Next summer the rivalry for Jude Bellingham will reach a climax. Of course, Borussia Dortmund would like to see this as an explanation for whereabouts. After all: A first club has already left the race.
There will not be a top European club that will not be looking to secure Jude Bellingham's services next summer. The BVB jewel, which was signed in summer 2020 for 25 million euros and has now increased its market value to four times the transfer fee, is causing a real hype internationally.
In addition, spurred on by good performances at the World Cup, various top clubs are trying to persuade him to change. However, one interested club is eliminated early: Manchester United.
The Red Devils will only have had outsider chances anyway due to the great competition, but dropping out of the race is a remarkable step. Sky reporter Florian Plettenberg reports on this development.
A few weeks ago there was talk of United's dwindling chances. Now it is "confirmed" that the Manchester club will not be an issue about Bellingham's future.
Dortmund should basically be ready to sell the 20-year-old in the summer. At least 100 to 150 million euros should have been spent as a price tag. So far, Liverpool FC is considered the most ambitious prospect. Jurgen Klopp is a great admirer of the young Briton.
